Ever got stuck at the "Your name here" part of a role playing character sheet or video game? Are you the GM of a pen & paper RPG, currently in urgent need of names for a group of elves, dwarves, orcs, etc.? Or perhaps you're writing a fantasy novel? This site can probably help.
Select a name type and length:
- Fantasy surnames work well only as short names, as medium or long ones will probably sound ridiculous (e.g. Stormwolfblade). Unless that's your intention, of course.
- Apostrophes (') and dashes (-) only appear in medium and long names.
- English names are in the format "name surname" (short) or "name middle-name surname" (medium or long, which in this case are the same).
- For place names, fantasy titles, superhero / supervillain names, rock band names, or military operation names, the length selection doesn't affect anything.
- Adapt suggestions to your needs. E.g. if you need ideas for baby names, simply choose English names and ignore the suggested surnames.
